a navy s.e.a.l. sniper was murdered at a texas gun range. you'll hear what his sister has to say about the suspects. stand by. epp;o/ñ0/pt>> we're just getting some new information here into the situation room. new information about the nomination of the former senator, chuck hagel, to be the nation's next secretary of defense. let's go to capitol hill to dana bash. what are you learning? >> reporter: cnn has learned that chuck hagel's confirmation to be the next defense secretary appears to be all but certain. the reason we can report that is by some excellent digging by our producers. what they have found out is they have found at least five republican senators who have said that they would oppose any filibuster to block hagel's nomination. so mathematically what that would mean is even if there would be a filibuster, which is still an if, he would likely have the votes to overcome that and would go on to become the next defense secretary. they talked to a lot of senators, a lot of senators' offices and they came up with five. only two of them are actually going to support hage

of massachusetts, john kerry was an officer in the united states navy. he served in vietnam, where pretty famously he was awarded three purple hearts and a silver star and a bronze star. before he was the senator from the great state of texas, before he was a lawyer, ted cruz, on the other hand, went to princeton, and then went to harvard law school, where he did very well in school. it was therefore pretty breathtaking when senator ted cruz voiced his opposition to both senator kerry's nomination at the state department and to the nomination of chuck hagel to run the defense department. chuck hagel received two purple hearts in vietnam and walks around every day with shrapnel in his chest. it was pretty remarkable when we heard the reason why senator ted cruz says that those two wounded combat veterans are not going to get his vote in the senate. >> we've got two pending nominations, john kerry, chuck hagel. both of whom are very prominently anti-us. less than ardent fans of the u.s. military. >> they don't love the military. not like he does. he is the junior senator from texas. there are no med

coming in to the battle. and next to him, there's lord french. we've got the-- the navy is next and there is admiral beatty, and that one is the other admiral, that's jellicoe. and the next one along who's that? that's the prime minister. there's david lloyd george. and what's it say? shell out. because he wants you to raise money for the cause of the war. then we've got to have the king himself and there he is, the most splendid of all, i think. and there is george v, proudly sitting on a throne with gilded lions and holding the globe with the british empire on it. i mean, they're very patriotic things, aren't they? very. and very much in the old traditions of toby jugs. they're humorous and amusing. but their faces are so good. i mean, that's one of the last one in the series and we've got-.that's general botha, the south african. he's the one which no one can remember and was the hardest to get. because he was less well known, and that's perhaps the rarest one. can you remember what your father paid for it? well, i doubt he paid more than... i don't know, ma

, the army, knave v navy marines, they don't move that fast. i don't think you should look at this issue in a way to be able to make money off of it, though. it's really not a needle-mover. as a matter of fact, it can be negative for a lot of the defense companies as we know and they've been under a cloud because of these cuts. here's one from danny in new york. hi, jim, i have heard you say when considering playing the downside of an equity you would short the stock rather than buy a put. please elaborate on your reasoning on this. danny, i'm so glad you sent me this because if i have created any misperception that i favor shorting stocks, it is completely out of character with all my books and what i used to do at my hedge fund or before i had my hedge fund when i was working for goldman sachs or trading for myself. i always do puts. i very rarely do shorts because as i write in "confessions of a street addict," i was a victim of horrible short squeezes that lost me a ton of money. use puts, i don't care if there's a premium. let's go to some tweets. here's one. covered calls allow me
